Dress Up - March

I've created my dress for this month for the Dress Up 2010 challenge.  To see more dresses created by other players, and Margaret's own beautiful one, go to her blog and check out Mr Linky. 

I started off with a white card dress template then sponged two colours all over.  I found some co-ordinating coloured tissue paper which I stuck onto the card using Liquitex Matte Medium.  (All of the original paint is now totally covered up!).  I overlaid some of the blue over the pink tissue at the neckline to make a sort of collar, but it is a bit random really.  I folded over some blue tissue to make the braces and rubber stamped some stitches onto them.  I also rubber stamped a swirly image over the top of the dress.  That's about it really, a bit of a plain one this month.


I'm off to check out Mr Linky now so I can oooh and aaaah over all the other dresses and get some inspiration for next month's dress.

What a pretty dress Sherry! I love your inventive use of her braces and stamps.

It'll not look plain (your words not mine!)when put with the other two dresses. I thought my January dress was a bit plain too but I was looking at my three dresses together yesterday and somehow by putting them altogether they each make the others look MORE. I don't know how else to say it, sorry!
